I guess I should have payed more attention to the reviews before we booked this resort. We were a small group of 21. Property itself was nice and clean. Check-in was the usual. Our room did not have air-conditioning and it took 2 days before a new room became available due to resort being at full capacity. Rooms were cleaned...

Just back on Tuesday from 2 amazing weeks in Negril and I cannot wait to go back. I have nothing negative to say about the place everything is perfect. The food is amazing, they have 3 a la carte's on the resort which we never visited once as the buffet was so good and had so much choice every night...

Beach and water was amazing, buffets were quite good, staff was very friendly. Room was OK, a bit dated but not bad. I recommend Riu Negril, our group of 44 was there for a wedding and had an awesome time.

We had a great time as this was a large family trip but there are definitely some areas of improvement. The grounds are very nice, the beach and water is fantastic (they don't have enough chairs though and they allow people to put their towels down on chairs to save them and then not use them until hours later -...

I just got back from ClubHotel Riu Negril last week and overall, I think it's a pretty good place. It was my first experience with all-inclusive and I've realized that the all-inclusive experience is not really for me. We ended up residing in building #4, which is the farthest away from everything. It wasn't all that inconvenient, we just had...

We just returned from the RIU on Saturday the 25th. Was also very worried about the bad reviews, they all turned out to be false. Check-in was easy, food was all you could ask for. Jerk Chicken on the beach was great every day around noon. Theme restaurants were not my deal, tried them and it was a waste of...

Getting away from wind and cold really has its perks!! A group of 12 traveled to Riu Negril in Feb, 2012. Non stop flight from BWI, arrived at the airport at 11:30am, and were immediately greeted by Apple Reps. after going through customs. We were taken to our bus for the 1 1/2 hour drive to the resort. Yes, it...

This place is 2.5 stars AT BEST! No elevators, A/C is weak (might I add it, is so humid, your shades fog up the minute you step out of your room!), NO PILLOWCASES!!

“Request an upper floor oceanfront in Bldg 1 or 2. There are no elevators, so if stairs are a problem, the main level may be best for you.”
